A woman who was killed Monday morning in a wreck on N.C. 43 was taking her son to school, according to a family friend. Her son was seriously injured and is undergoing treatment at Vidant medical center.

“She was a good mom,” said Debbie Cannon, who works with the boy’s grandmother at a local restraurant. “She loved her baby.”

Martika Donigan, 25, of Greenville was driving a 2013 Hyundai south on the highway when it ran off the right shoulder of the road, Trooper D.A. Swanson said. When Donigan pulled back on the road, she over corrected and crossed into the left lane, crashing head-on into a 2007 GMC Envoy traveling north on N.C. 43.

Cannon called it a freak accident.

“We don’t know why things happen or why God allows them,” she said. “We don’t question him.”

Decadyen Donigan, 4, was in a child safety seat in the rear seat, Swanson said

The boy’s grandmother, who lost her daughter in the wreck, is a wonderful, special lady, Cannon said.

“We feel her pain,” Cannon said.

The Envoy's driver, Rayshaun Tyson, 33, also of Greenville, tried to stop, Swanson said. He was treated for non-life threatening injuries at Vidant Medical Center.

A woman was killed and a 4-year-old child was seriously injured after a Monday morning head-on collision on N.C. 43 South.

The wreck happened at 7:55 a.m., six miles south of Greenville on N.C. 43, south of Major Smith Road, Trooper D.A. Swanson said.

Martika Donigan, 25, of Greenville was driving a 2013 Hyundai south on the highway when it ran off the right shoulder of the road, Swanson said. When Donigan pulled back on the road, she over corrected and crossed into the left lane, crashing head-on into a 2007 GMC Envoy traveling north on N.C. 43.

The Envoy's driver, Rayshaun Tyson, 33, also of Greenville, tried to stop, Swanson said, " but there wasn't a whole lot he could do because he didn't have a whole lot of time to react."

In the car with Donigan was Decadyen Donigan, 4, who was in a child safety seat in the rear seat, Swanson said. It is unknown if Donigan was the child's mother.

Donigan died at the scene. The boy, whose injuries were described as severe, was in surgery at Vidant Medical Center early Monday afternoon. 

Tyson sustained non-life threatening injuries and was transported to Vidant Medical Center for treatment. Information about his condition was unavailable at press time.

Swanson said the wreck closed the highway for about one hour. 

Note: An earlier version of this story reported that the child also had been killed. Reports this morning indicated that the child is alive and in surgery at Pitt County Memorial Hospital.
